Killer price for the specs. I'll never buy another gaming laptop again after the 970m died in my Sager NP8671 after a little over a year. (no extended warranty)

More or less same performance wise when compared to R2 version but this one has 512GB SSD whereas at this price, you may get an Alienware 15R2 Factory Refurb or Outlet model with same CPU and GPU but other than that you will get 8GB Ram and 1TB HDD instead.

Another thing apart from hardware configuration, 15 R2 has a dimmer screen, below 220 nits and in some areas of the screen, actually below 200 nits. This one has a better brightness. Also this one is a bit ligher that 15 R2.

Is it really an IPS panel? Cos on the website when I click zoom on the screen option then choose specs, it doesn't state IPS there, while other Asus system they do say it's IPS.

Yes it is an IPS Panel. I did even researched and mention which model of IPS panel it uses. MSI GE62 Ghost and Ghost pro always come with IPS panel. You can go to the MSI Product page and check.

If you brought your laptop with a credit card, they usually double your warranty. (Amex + discover + some visa and master)

Man, why is it that there is always a catch? Should have included it instead of just USB 3.1. Sigh.
